Man Dies At Bahamas Home Owned By Louis Bacon

His name was Dan Tuckfield, and though the police say that their investigation “did not find that there was anything suspicious about the way the man died,” he did show “signs of decomposition” by the time they found him, which was almost immediately, so the neighbors are suspicious. Obviously this is very sad, but if there’s any consolation to be had, it’s the comfort we can take in the fact that Tuckfield was the happiest possible conditions when he passed: he was in a Jacuzzi and he was naked. It doesn’t get much better than that (the only way it could is if he was literally surrounded by bacon, not just in spirit, or if his tongue constantly regenerating strip of bacon).

Tuckfield’s body was found at the Lyford Cay home of billionaire financier Louis Bacon around 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 2, according to reports obtained by The Guardian. Tuckfield’s death certificate listed his time of death as 9:30 a.m. on May 2. However, the death certificate said the body, which police reportedly discovered a short while later, already showed “signs of decomposition.” Tuckfield’s cause of death was listed as “coronary artery disease” and the certificate listed no antecedent causes.

On Wednesday police clarified that Tuckfield was actually found naked in the jacuzzi at Point House, not the pool. It is understood that no one else was at the home when his body was discovered. Bacon was reportedly not in the country at the time.

    when are people gonna realize that the steam makes your body absorb the coke faster than you expect and you OD as a result of doing it in the hot tub?

    just making it up but sounds good, right?

    Knew a private detective in Houston who passed out drunk in a hot tub. Because of the aerated bubbling of the tub he was unable to be seen slumped in the bottom of the tub until a drunk lady lawyer was getting in and placed her foot upon the submerged PI. The drunk was pulled from the hot tub by other party-goers and revived.

    You will tend to decompose faster in a hot tub than a freezer chest.
